Risk and Crisis Work
As an Independent practitioner, my service cannot safely support those in crisis, experiencing severe depression, or suicidal thoughts. Individuals who experience these types of difficulties are much more appropriately and safely supported by a multi-disciplinary team who have access to emergency care and different types of treatments. The NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and Adult Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) can be accessed via your GP. This is in line with my professional guidelines and local safeguarding policies and procedures.

Information for clients
What is a Clinical Psychologist?
Clinical Psychologists have completed Doctoral level qualifications that include specific training in assessment, formulation and delivery of therapy with clients of all ages, and from all backgrounds. Clinical Psychologists are assessed across supervised clinical placements within the National Health Service. Practitioner Psychologist (Clinical) is a protected title and all Clinical Psychologists must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a licence to practice. The British Psychological Society sets out clinical and ethical guidelines for practice. I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.
What types of therapy are available?
I use individualised, person focused formulations of clients needs and offer only evidence based treatments (that is, treatments that are recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Evidence (NICE guidelines), including but not limited to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR, Schema and DBT Informed work.
Please see the excellent leaflets by the Royal College of Psychiatry and Mind- links in Resources
The approach offered is driven an initial assessment and the development of an individual formulation of your needs. Together we will explore your needs and develop a sense of how they have emerged and what is maintaining any difficulties, and use this to inform and direct the therapeutic approach. We will set specific goals and use a range of measures so that you can monitor your progress and change.
Work with carers
I can offer carer sessions to support the work with loved one. This may include adjacent skills sessions on supporting your child with anxiety or low mood, or behaviour management. I can also offer sessions to carers focused on stress and burnout. For adult clients who consent I can offer carer support to partners and family members, for example on understanding and supporting your current needs, helping to support change, or managing relationships.
